to discuss what he thinks is the reason behind the president's trip. >> i think it allows president obama to check the box that he finally made it to israel. it's significant it comes after the american election. he goes to israel on his terms while the visit will be heavy with symbolism and opportunities this is a rare trip in which the substance of the visit will be divorced from the symbolism. i don't think there will be any fence mending on this trip. president obama comes with two messages one make more concessions to the palestinians and two don't think about attacking iran's nuclear weapons program. if people could hear the conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu are about to have i think the 10 percent rating would be even lower. oo a oo this morning we are hearing the 911 call that may have stopped the massacre at the university. >> my roommate pulled the fire alarm and he has a gun out. he's there with some sort of large assault gun. >> that call was made by avakani. he was plotting to kill fellow students and pulled the alarm to lure them into the hallway

here. i think there is something to this trip that if netanyahu and obama speaking in israel, but also speaking to iran. do you think there is any merit to that? >> well, yeah, i mean, in iran i'm sure they read some of the headlines and everything that has been written about the president and netanyahu how they don't get along how netanyahu would have preferred romney to win. this is to show that there is no daylight between the two countries. i think each president was in full pander mode. i thought netanyahu was quite gracious to the president, saying they've met 10 or 11 times. he appreciates the time the u.s. president is putting into this, and the banter not only at the press conference, but the reports from the reporters following them and apparently netanyahu has been lamenting about all the political problems he's facing putting this new coalition together and the president saying, well, tell me about it. i have problems with our congress and netanyahu said we have more moving parts around here. and they're talking about the system they have to operate in. >> michael: it's a f
